700 BCE to 600 BCE
Bronze pendant imitating cheese grater. Bronze trapezoidal pendant. Complete. Made from a sheet of bronze folded double and the halves fastened together through 4 pairs of opposite perforations along the base. In the outermost of these rings probably for attaching other rings or small pendants; rings are now missing from the inner perforations; through one pair of them passes a flat band of bronze bent tightly together probably to hold fast the two faces of the pendant. Fine punched dots on both faces. MS1092A-C and MS1093 may have been suspended from pendant.
Purchased from Francesco Mancinelli-Scotti, 1896
